SanDisk reveals the first 1TB SDXC memory card

PHOTOKINA, COLOGNE, GERMANY — Today, SanDisk revealed the first 1 terabyte SDXC memory card in the world at Photokina 2016. Western Digital Corporation, revealed the card today at the Photokina world trade fair for photography and videography professionals.

“Showcasing the most advanced imaging technologies is truly exciting for us,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product management, Content Solutions Business Unit, Western Digital. “Sixteen years ago we introduced the first SanDisk 64MB SD™ card and today we are enabling capacities of 1TB. Over the years our goal has remained the same; continue to innovate and set the pace for the imaging industry. The SanDisk 1TB SD card prototype represents another significant achievement as growth of high-resolution content and capacity-intensive applications such as virtual reality, video surveillance and 360 video, are progressing at astounding rates.”

In 2014, SanDisk premiered the SanDisk Extreme PRO 512GB SDCX flash memory card. It seems just years ago that we were happy about a 1GB memory card, and never did we imagine a future with 1,000 times that size.
